Consultant - Shelley Brierley



Saskatchewan Day-Care Association Training Program - 1976
This program was developed as a module to train all day care staff across the province of Saskatchewan in communications skills.

"Evolution of Leadership" Leaders as Learners ©
"The program has proved to be a powerful means of influencing change within an organization! Facilitators taught us a way of understanding our human "needs" and the related behaviours as well as how we as individuals can influence the improvement process occurring within a system. The process teaches us all how to take responsibility for our own behaviours and how working together in an interdependent environment will build a healthier team-centered organization, improving the learning opportunities of our students."
- Bruce Blaine, Superintendent, Centralia School District, Wash., U.S.A.

Leadership "Circle of Strength ©Re-framing Conflict: Understanding Patterns of Behaviour"

"The workshop was an elegant and powerful learning experience. It catalyzed the establishment of functional relationships in several co-workers at the health unit where people had been distracted by interpersonal conflicts."
- Dr.Lorna Medd, MHO,Prince George, BC

"Your workshops created an open-minded group of people who are now, truly, working together. The atmosphere in our building is relaxed and upbeat. I would like to thank you from all of us, for having provided us with the insight needed to work together."
- Gerry ten Wolde, President, Board of Directors, Quesnel and District Credit Union.

"Strength we all strive for, but it is one of the most difficult concepts to define and teach, Many professionals I have worked with are excited to use Ms. Brierley's dynamic "Circle of Strength to move from helpless to hopeful in the challenging times of systems change."
- Diane Gossen, Author of "Restitution, Doing It, Creating the Conditions".

"Thank you so much Shelley. This has already helped me personally and professionally and will take our staff light years toward meeting our goals!"
- Jody Nelson, Principal, Peter Greer School, Kelowna, BC

"The Circle of Strength concepts helped me regain control over my relationships at no one's expense and everyone's benefit."
- John Smithman, President, New Business Support Services, B.C.

“I have contracted staff training with Shelley for 15 years. I believe Shelley is a great teacher of congruent communication in personal and interpersonal relationships. She leads through modelling healthy and supportive strategies to access the person you have the potential to become.”
- Cindy Ignas, Manager of Parenting Services for the Northern Interior Health Authority, BC
